Its easy to figure out leather....go into your closet smell your nice leather coat them go into your laundry and smell a dirty sock... then go to your car and sniff around it.We have a '08 Limited with the Saddle leather, which we fell in love with when we saw the show car at the auto show in 2007. But I swear they changed it, my wife swears it isn't really leather. And I have to agree the sides of the seating surface are cracking so bad, and we conditioned it plenty. I know that the very sides of the seats aren't but the area next to the perforated seats should be. Our friends Kia Sedona seems like it has better leather.
